Fatpacks with Smart Hud

There are fatpacks available now from my best selling items.

You can recognize them easily with the smart hud display. The easy color changer hud saves you a lot of inventory items if you like more than 2 or 3 colors of a product.
I learned to love the color changer huds for all kind of attachments.

And I do them on request, if you ask for a special product, that is sold in a single color yet. Just contact me.

Happy recoloring!

Sputnik, the store drone

May I introduce Sputnik, our friendly store drone, who is greeting everybody personally by flying in front, but keeping a safe distance.

I hate those boring blue menus popup with every doorstep I cross. So I thought let’s try something new and Muad had fun to install our drone.

I colored it in friendly turquoise and magenta tones and I hope you will like that way of being welcomed.

See you,

Freda & Sputnik

Skin Fair 2019

Skin Fair is one of the biggest annual events in SL and almost everybody is very excited about it. I wanted to use this chance to find a mesh head at last!

You can find many informations about the skin fair and a link to a great movie by Strawberry Singh here:
https://strawberrysingh.com/2019/03/06/skin-fair-2019/

The fair with around 200 participants is placed on 2 sims and visitors avatar complexity is limited to 50.000, a good step to a halfway good user experience.

So first I put on what I absolutely needed: my mesh body and hair.
My “Freda” Mia dress and a pair of high heels added up to 44.000. Perfect!

It took me about 3 hours to look at every booth that caught my eye.
I got tons of Demos of all big and small brands mesh heads with matching skins and shapes.

It took me another 3 hours to unpack and to try all those demos.
I was really willing to get a mesh head at last, so I did this with patience (not my thing usually) and care. I edited my shape and I tried everything, tested huds, turned sliders…
I looked into many strange faces, that were so far away from myself like Mars and just not me. It was frustrating and I better do not show any pictures of this process.

I remember I had the same problem 11 years ago, when I searched for a new skin.
Then there was the moment when I discovered Pulse skins. I looked at the vendor pic and I looked into a familiar face.
I still wear my Pulse Skin “Elegance” and even if many make ups are outdated I still feel very well with the nude lipstick and dark eye shadow.
Here comes a late “thank you” to Lorac Farella who sadly left SL (said so in her last blog post) in 2016. Who knows maybe one day she comes back like I did it…

Maybe one day it will be possible to bake my face on a mesh head matching my shape.
So no mesh head at this time. And nobody can say I did not try it. I did!!!

Love from good old Freda system face.

It’s raining!!!

Just for the fun I have made a series of umbrellas.
I just couldn’t stop myself to make them and the more I made the more ideas were coming my way…

So I did not make it to go photo shooting a lot this week. Just one shot in our own beautiful garden in front of the store, which became a real recreation area within the past two weeks. Another good reason to get over to “Fredas”.

Solar Energy in Second Life

When we saw the solar house from our neighbor Patrick first time Muad thought ” cool!” and I thought “strange!”. But we are in SL where you find almost everything.

After a nice talk we learned there is a sustainable community in SL, Etopia, a group of people who educate in renewable energy with RL examples.
It is about making people aware of the necessity of a sustainable environment and this is what I find cool, too!

So Muad put on his overalls and installed solar panels on my shop roof.
Now I feel much better heating that old leaky steampunk home and using all those lights being on 24/7 in the shop :-).

We are having solar panels and an electric car in our RL, too, btw.

Have a great Sunday!

Love, Freda

How easy it is to get abandoned land

Since 5 years the land beside my own land is abandoned land, owned by Governor Linden and not for sale.
Now that I reopened my shop and the entry is very close to the neighbor land I decided to research if I can buy the piece of land to get more prims and more space for a nice shop entry area.

I had to submit a ticket from my Second Life account, choosing Land and Region -> Abandoned Land.

10 days later I got an email from Midori Linden. She has set the land for sale to me for 1L$/m, so easy. Click click and we could come with the bulldozer :-).

Yesterday we placed tiles, planted bushes until late at night and created a lovely little recreation area in front of the store. We made Knieff, an ugly sim on the mainland just a tad more beautiful. One more reason to get over to “Freda”.

See you!

Products used:

the path system by:
Botanical Outdoor and Garden Design http://slbotanical.com/blog
A wonderful 4 seasons changeable easy system, that comes in several stone colors with and without moss.
The low hedges are from the same vendor (Botanical) as well as the lamp posts which adjust automatically to the sim light. Fantastic!

The little garden scene by:
Two Moon Gardens
This is just an incredible company. They offer countless garden scenes of every size and style. You can rez them with one click on the vendors, one after the other and walk through the rezzed scene. It was so hard to decide what to buy. And the prices are almost nothing for the fantastic quality you get.

I added a little scene (the tree with lanterns and the garden sofa) from one of my favorite vendors: Kazza

The fresh grown grass and the falling leaves are from: T-Spot Home and Garden Center

The bicycle stand with bike and beer crate is from: Harry’s Outdoor & Living Main Store
For only 5 L$ you get a fantastic fully ridable bike in 3 versions (just deco or wear).

Have much fun shopping for garden stuff,

Love, Freda
